Paldo Bibimmyeon Cup (South Korea)

We’ve gotten quite a few requests from our readers to do various Korean noodles, so today we will accede to one. Here we have the Paldo Bibimmyeon Cup (Korean: 팔도 비빔면 컵) from South Korea. For our other Paldo reviews, you may click here.

For those who are not familiar with Korean cuisine, bibimmyeon refers to spicy Korean fried noodles that feature gochujang (spicy red pepper paste) as it’s base flavor. It is typically cooked with eggs, vegetables and various choices of meat. It’s definitely a dish on the must-try list for any first time visitor to Korea.

We begin our review with the photos of the packaging and its contents.

The cup contains the noodle block and a single sachet of seasoning sauce.

Preparation is really easy. Remove the sachet and pour in sufficient boiling water. Close the lid and let the noodles cook for 3 minutes. Next, drain the hot water using the perforated holes on the lid as shown below. Finally, mix the sauce with the noodles thoroughly before serving.

We added some chili, a chicken frank and a wedge of egg to complete the dish.

Verdict

The noodles here are the classic Korean wheat flour ones that are thick and chewy. They are very well complemented by the sauce. Whilst the sauce consists of just a single sachet, the flavors were delightfully authentic. We could taste the savory bean paste underneath the spicy heat of of the chili (3.5 chilis). There was also a strong umami seaweed flavor that helped to make the dish seem to taste more complex that it actually is.

We really liked the Paldo Bibimmyeon Cup and give it a final score of 3.5 stars.
